Say What? Chatter Bugs!


More was revealed on Hardball today than any of us would have thought possible about Vivac, Luskin, Hadley and Rove if true. Special guest stars Jim VandeHei and Nora O'Donnell, shared some new information in this saga. Jane at Firedoglake called and wanted to know if she heard this accurately.

VandeHei : "We still don't know exactly where Karl Rove originally learned about Valerie Plame, that's still one of the mysteries. We know one of them he had heard it from was Hadley as sort of just chatter inside the office, but he had learned it earlier from some other place and we still don't know where that is."

(Did Jim just let a cat out of the bag?)

Hamsher writes:

"I really had to pick myself up off the floor. Nobody batted an eyelash. Were Chris Matthews and Norah O'Donnell just so completely uninformed that they did not recognize what a bombshell this was? They just sat there nodding and blinking like this was no surprise that people inside the White House were casually gossiping about Valerie Plame's identity over the water cooler. Did they not realize that up until now any knowledge of the mad gabbing and plotting had been limited to the Vice President's office? That other than the memo from Karl Rove following his conversation with Matt Cooper nobody had ever tied Hadley to the leak? on
